Three men – Werner Heisenberg, Kurt Godel, and Noam Chomsky – walk into a bar and order a drink.
Heisenberg says, “Well there’s three of us and we’re ordering drinks so we must be inside a joke. I just can’t tell if it’s funny or not.”
Godel replies, “Even if it’s funny, the three of us won’t be able to prove it.”
Chomski says, “What are you talking about? Of course it’s funny. You’re just telling it wrong!”
And today’s winer is …

That reminds me of spoonerisms:
My favorite attributed to him was, “Madam, I believe that pew is taken – may I sew you to another sheet?”
We love Spoonerisms in our family! My dad started it by calling peanut butter, “neaput butter.” I ask my kids to take their plates to the “wishdasher,” and tell them that their bleeding scrape after a fall “makes my wees kneak.” We try to work them into other areas of conversation, too…like reading the announcements on the front screen at church aloud before the service. It makes things lighthearted. Thanks for bringing this up, @Dale.
It’s good to know we’re not alone. I remember a carload of people being mildly amused as we passed a Food Mart, and I turned that one into a Spoonerism.
I really enjoyed the “riding the well-boiled icicle”. Thanks for that!
I occasionally cook snakes on the grill. Chicken fried snake is a common menu item in these parts.
I used to get excited every time PBS aired the Victor Borge videos… he’s hilarious!
You would also like playing with Oofengloofish, especially with children. It’s a ‘secret’ language like pig Latin, but more fun, I think. It’s simple in concept, and easier to hear than speak, at first. You just put an ‘oof’ before every vowel sound. So ‘English’ is, guess what, ‘Oofengloofish’. My older boy when he was little figured out pretty fast what ‘ooficecroofeam’ was.
And after some practice, you can play with Ipenglipish and Openglopish, Imenglimish and …
Has anyone else run across it in their travels, maybe @Christy? My wife learned it in college in the 60s, along with some other stuff.
Do you buy them de-fanged?
This is more of a theological joke. Loosely. It made me laugh when I read it.
George RR Martin is waiting for his editor, Jesus Christ, to comb one last time through “ Winds of Winter”.
Hey all … get entertained and educated all at the same time with this 20 minute video of Mark Rober learning to deal with bird-feeder-robbing squirrels in his back yard. It’s so well done.
OK, I live under a rock. I seriously had to look up “George RR Martin.” I know now his books led to “Game of Thrones,” though I’ve never watched it. I know there were a couple of kingdoms, including a cold one. Can you clarify? Or is it too involved? Sorry. Thanks.
Just joking about how it takes him “forever” to write his next book. Been waiting for like 7 years for the next one and the one before that , in the series, came out when I was probably still a teenager.
I’m with @Randy – the winds made a whoosh sound… right over my head.
